I severely displaced and fractured my pinky finger and required surgery and the insertion of metal pins.
Dr Samra took care of me and did the necessary surgery and follow-up procedures. It turned out great and in less than four months I have full use of my hand and finger. Also the office staff, especially his assistant, did a great job making me feel comfortable and confident at the follow-up office visits.

Dr. Samra performed a full tummy tuck with muscle repair on me in January 2018. He along with his medical assistant, Samantha and the entire office staff have been wonderful! Dr. Samra is very professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. The nurses and staff at the surgical center were so kind and welcoming. I was very nervous prior to my surgery, but they all put me at ease. My results are nothing short of amazing and the recovery has been smooth and pain free!


Very helpful and pleasant staff. Dr. Salem Samra was excellent and I would highly recommend this practice.

I have had ear reconstruction with Dr. Salem Samra. From beginning to end I have been very pleased with Dr. S. Samra and his staff. I was very anxious about the surgery. Dr Samra and his staff put me at ease with their willingness to listen to my concerns and explain the procedure in a simple and caring manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing reconstructive surgery.
